. >> millionaires just declared war, on schools, the environment, unions fair pay, we're all on our own if mitt romney is elected. i strongly suggest that you wake the [ censor bleep ] up. >> jennifer: so now let's get to one of the brains behind the great shlep and wake the bleep up. thank you for being here? >> thank you for having me. >> how did you get involved in this project? >> i had been active like many young people in 2008. i canvassed for obama, phone banked -- >> jennifer: where? >> at the university of michigan, go blue. >> jennifer: go blue. carry on. >> yeah. and in 2008 when obama won, i think a lot of people felt that change had already been won, when it was really just the beginning. and 2010 we kind of got complaisant, including myself and i want to get back involved. >> sheldon, i have a proposal for you, and i'm serious. look at me. if you give that $100 million to obama instead of romney i will -- well i won't have sex with you, because we're not married and i'm a nice girl but i will scissor you.

into account a population that creates a robust learning environment because you have robust students. you would agree with that then. >> i do, but if you continue with her statement. >> we can agree on something. >> i think we might agree more than you might think. >> we really don't agree on the voter right thing. >> that's for sure. >> i really appreciate you coming inside the war room, though. i wish we had a little more time, because it would be fun to debate you and serious too for our viewers to hear where we're coming from. >> still more to do tonight in the war room, and a big announcement about tomorrow, all coming up right after the break. >>i jump out of my skin at people when i'm upset. do you share the sense of outrage that they're doing this, this corruption based on corruption based on corruption. >>i think that's an understatement, eliot. u>> i'm not prone tot. understatement, so explain to me why that is. i think the mob learned from wall st., not vice versa. >> it is so hard to believe that it's been over five months since rick santorum became the last candidate to offic
declared war on schools, the unions, environment, fair pay. we're on our own with romney has his way. he's against safety nets. if you fall, tough luck. i strongly suggest that you wake the [bleep] up. >> all right now look, this message is direct to a lot of folks, but specifically, they of course want to reach african-american latinos and minority groups because it made such a difference in the 2008 campaign. 2 million more black voters voted in 2008 than 2004 and 2 million more latino voters voted in 2008. it's important for them to get back out. in terms of younger voters, 18-29 year olds, enthusiasm makes a big difference. in 2008, 79% definitely planned to vote. now this career, only 63% definitely plan to vote. and so, what happens if you don't go out to vote? well everybody remembers 2000, don't they? >> stand by, stand by, cnn right now is moving our earlier declaration of florida back to the too close to call column. >> what a night that was. and what a nightmare it wound up being for the country when that was made in the wrong way. and of course, it led to this moment. >> whil

in this environment which is -- i love when the head of the nfl player's association, smith says, our workplace. interesting and odd workplace but it is their workplace. and injuries are common. 100%. what is safety about? what are the rules and how do you function in that? also, the nfl is an enormously powerful profit gobbling industry. and we love it in this country. we don't hate -- they love -- we don't mind this grand and glorious profit-making institution they've created. we don't begrudge them the money they make. we wish -- to pay as much for our tickets but we go and watch and celebrate all of this. a lot of american life is royaled up into our experience with the nfl. >> bill: as long as it's fair. >> as long as you have a sense of fairness, a sense of directness and i would also say one of the things that the players missed, the fans missed and the head coaches who have literally begun touching referees and getting in their face, screaming about lack of authority. >> bill: right. >> societies want authority figu

candidate sort of feel the words and the environment before you really put them to the test. part is about building confidence and helping someone work their way into their stride. so i think typically yes you're running through those questions and then you're kind of up on your feet. and then you go from there. you rework the questions. you see how you're presenting piece by piece. it all comes together. >> jennifer: how important is this debate prep for president obama because romney has been debating a lot this year. just real quickly. >> i think it's very important. this is the highest influxion moment of any campaign, particularly a presidential campaign. and so he's pretty good on his feet but again every answer is a minute and a half. you have to be hone and sharp and get your few points across that will then be covered by the media and form the broader public's opinion of what happened. >> jennifer: exactly. so interesting. i'll be watching. great popcorn moment. that's democratic strategist jill alpe

[ dennis' voice ] poodles are one of the world's smartest breeds. are you in good hands? meaning ful to feel them. >> gavin: as we dive head first into the finale of an election year it's important to pay attention to freedom of expression. obama and romney may spend their time arguing over economic policy and there is no doubt that they have important distinctions, but it's our ability to openly yes particular them that sets us apart from so much of the world. each amounts book the perks of being a wall flower deals with issues that would have been banned in other country says truck, home so sexuality suicide and sex, these are the very issues young adult deal with t
through his business career, and it is a really safe environment for somebody who is essentially a sociopath to give. >> stephanie: yeah, i think of all of the disturbing things on the video that was one of the most disturbing. i inherited nothing. i did all of this by myself. >> stephanie: really your father ran a car company and you did all of this on your own. >> caller: yeah. people need to be aware that -- that this kind of thing happens, and, you know, people need help and not [ inaudible ] at a certain point. >> mitt romney was born on third base and thought he hit a triple. >> stephanie: mitt romney. >> romney: we're going to win. polls go up and down some weeks i'm ahead, some weeks i'm behind. >> stephanie: no, dude. >> he is plucky. >> stephanie: he didn't seem that convinced did he? >> we're going to win. we're so screwed. you bet ya. we're -- we're going to win. >> romney: don't build these massive deficits that pass debt on to our kids. rebuild the foundation of america's strength with great homes, great schools, with entrepreneurship and innovatio
as president. i think what he's going to do, i think what he's likely to do, in this case, the environment favors a sort of response. where in this case he can double down. he's going to say you know, what i was concerned about was people's lives and it was and is a dangerous situation and it is deteriorating further as we see now. and so what we need in our diplomacy and at a time like this is not reserve. but we need bold action to make sure we have security in place and we're learning now there was no security. so my feeling is that obama didn't react fast enough. we need to act. >> jennifer: embrace the no apology -- >> on that question, yes. >> jennifer: put on your republican strategist hat which i know is difficult for you. would you refine the answer in any way? >> romney has to look a little less petty a little less pet you on a lent and a little less political. you can see what he and the republicans have done in the last week or two. they've begun to challenge president obama's supposedly dissing the prime min
